Audio Blog

Sometimes a blog is meant to be heard. I don't have the technology to do that. So I pray that something in this will make sense. It is 10:30 p.m. I arrived home from our women's bible study about 30 minutes ago. Checking email, grabbing a snack - and then you hear it. The men's group in our basement that meets at our house every other Tuesday. Singing. Singing praises to God. This week there is even a guitar.

If you had told my husband that someday he would be singing worship songs in his basement with a group of other God-seeking, God-fearing men after they had spent time in prayer - well, up until the last few years, he probably would have just hit you for suggesting such a thing. Not that he's violent, he would have just thought you had lost it and needed some sense knocked into you.

Malachi 3:10 tells us to "Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this," says the LORD Almighty, "and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it." I used to think that those blessings were financial and material. I know better. Sometimes the floodgates open with a group of singing men in your basement.

What a Special Blessing God gave you! So many times we think of those blesings in ways that are only material and financial but I think the greater gifts are those we do not see but know in faith He is providing or has waiting if we only ask and sometimes we need to just slow ourselves down enough to see what special blessings He is providing right in front of noses! Thanks for the great reminder! Luv Ya!

Kim, what a blessing that had to have been. I am so thankful that you and Kenny open your home to those men. It is amazing to see the change in them when they come home. There is just something powerful that happens when all those men get together to worship and pray to our Amazing Lord. Love you guys! Susan V.
